I'm no expert, but I generally don't treat a fever like that, either. If the dc is in discomfort, then I'll give some tylenol or motrin. my ds seems to have a slight fever almost all the time! I think teething definitely does it.
My understanding is that fever is generally good, it's the body fighting the illness. As long as it stays in the lower range, anyway, and doesn't go higher and higher.
BTW, I would also hold off on the antibiotics.
I hope she feels better soon!
